This space was beautiful and fit our needs perfectly. Jane was extremely easy to work with and very communicative. She was quick to respond to all of our questions and concerns. The security guard was also very helpful and extremely kind. Truly can't recommend this location enough.

Auction Options in San Francisco

  • Auctioneer

    You do not have to have food at your auction, but it is a nice way to get people to stay longer and come back the next time you have one. Hungry people do not like to stay and shop.

  • Security
    Auctions are typically filled with lots of expensive items so having security is important. You do not have to hire a whole crew, but one or two security guards would be perfect for a small to medium auction.

  • Furniture
    Whether your auction location is an empty warehouse or a huge mansion, you will probably need to get some kind of furniture like seating for large groups during the auctioning process. You will also need tables for food and other items.

  • Professional Equipment
    There are many things that you cannot do without when planning an auction. Excellent sound equipment, staging, and lighting are just a few of these that you need to think about.
